Reyhana Ismail is a graphic designer specialising in book and magazine design, including children's book illustration. She has been designing since 2001, working both freelance and as an employee and consultant for various companies.

Using high quality, beautiful imagery as her foundation, Reyhana's minimal style reflects her belief that when it comes to design, less is more. She is also a firm believer that if you love what you do, it will reflect in your work - and in this regard she is one of those rare people who has successfully combined her career and passion.
